Got this tip from my @nlaforher teammates to help me remember to take my vitamins and supps everyday while on a busy schedule and traveling. Got this vitamin organizer at Walgreens and its been a total lifesaver. I can see if I forgot to take something and it’s easier to carry with me or travel with instead of taking every bottle. – It may look like a lot but I don’t take too much and I only take the best and cleanest vitamins that are research based. – From left to right: #HealthyHer antioxidant blend, #ShredHer low stim fat burner I take occasionally when getting ready for a big event or shoot, #HerMulti daily multi vitamin, #HerOmegas omega 3s, Vitamin D3 because apparently we’re all “low” so why not?, #Zinc for an immune system boost while traveling a lot and because I don’t tend to eat too much red meat or seafood while dieting for something, #HerCLA to naturally support overall fat loss and promote lean muscle gains. ? – Everyone’s needs are different but I think most of these are just the basics. What are your daily vitamins & supplements?

#NewWeekMotivation Another week down and another brand new week started today. I love new weeks.. because it’s a brand new start to kick a** and take names! . Going into the new week, Ask yourself – Did I give last week 100%? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? How about… Do the people I spend my time with lift me up or make me feel small? Did I do something last week that propels me closer to my goals for this? . No matter what size action (big or small) everyday you can make a difference in your life and the lives around you. Take a deep breath and remember that if you have a heartbeat, you have a purpose. Challenge yourself to wake up tomorrow and give your new week 100%. Compliment someone, make a checklist doing something everyday to propel you closer to your goals, kick the gyms a** this week and only surrounding yourself with positive hard working like-minded individuals who encourage you and push you to be the best you can be. #Shredz #ShredzAthlete A photo posted by @paigehathaway on
